E-Verify, the electronic system for verifying workers' legal status and eligibility to work that had been seen as onerous by some small business owners, has proven successful with many restaurant owners, according to a new survey from the National Restaurant Association. Some 79% of 780 restaurant owners surveyed said the system worked 100% of the time, and 80% said they would recommend it to other business owners. Immigration reform bills in both the Senate and House would make it mandatory for businesses to use an electronic system.
